Senator CANAVAN (QueenslandMinister for Resources and Northern Australia) (18:00): The government does not support this motion. The government supports action by the financial services industry to provide consumers with more rights to hold institutions to account. The Australian Securities and Investments Commission's support for this code not only is an important part of rebuilding the community's trust in the financial sector but also puts pressure on other sectors to raise their standards in how they deal with consumers.

The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT ( Senator Williams ): Thank you, Senator Canavan. Senator Whish-Wilson, do you require the right of reply?

Senator Whish-Wilson: No. I'm just interjecting.

The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT: I know you're interjecting. You shouldn't be, but you do have the right of reply if you wish to use it. Do you wish to use the right of reply? Go ahead, Senator Whish-Wilson, seeing as there are no other speakers.
